But, this morning I was surprised to see that the huge Iranian news agency—Mehr News Agency—was paying so much attention that it appears to have lifted in its entirety World Net Daily‘s story on the findings.  (It might have left out a few bits of Leo Hohmann’s report, I didn’t analyze all of it, but enough to see that it was lifted mostly verbatim.)

I could find no attribution given to WND.

The fact that my name came up in an alert for a story at an Iranian news outlet is what inspired me to go have a look.
